Yale question #7...personal statement? 250 words?
« on: August 18, 2004, 11:19:57 AM »
Question 7:
Write an essay of not more than 250 words on the subject of your choice.

Then in 10 youre supposed to do the 2-page personal statement, apparently, since it says, you may add a personal statement such as one you sent to other law schools or whatnot.

So what to write about for 7? 

Ive been thinking for like a week on this and i have no clue...

what do you write about??

if i were in your situation, i'd pick out an essay that you've already written, and that may have received a good grade from a professor as part of your college curriculum--so that you know it's good.

but i'm lazy, and that's an easy out.

Yeah - just for grins I decided to shoot for the moon and apply to a couple of top 5 schools. Becuase of this wierd oddity in Yale's application, I decided it wouldn't be one of my super-reach attempts.
